Lawmaker who wrote sexual massages to teen boys denies being gay


Mike Yenni, 40, President of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, was revealed as sending the explicit texts to a 17-year-old earlier in the year. He does not deny sending massages, but says that it does not mean having sex with boys. Now facing investigation by the FBI, Mr Yenni said what had happened has been taken out of context. “They think these things… they think things were acted upon. They think there was, you know…. this was over a period, you know, the total time frame, probably less than two weeks. I really believe that, the way they’ve thrown these words out there, and the way… the way they’ve tried allude to certain things… by trying to define me as a person I’m not. By his pleadings….Like, in other words, what he’s trying to say in his pleadings, ‘He is a pedophile, he is an admitted homosexual.’ And that is not true. I’ve never admitted that. It doesn’t define me either. ..To simply say, I’m not gay.”
